Question about Frigidaire FRS26R4A Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Loud grinding noise

There is an intermittent grinding noise coming from behind the ice maker. It sounds like something is trying to run but is stuck and keeps grinding. The ice and water are coming out fine. The noise comes and goes constantly. Very, very loud. Any ideas?
Thanks

Electrolux ice maker bucket stuck


Probably the ice maker leaking caused by ice maker itself or faulty water valve. I would think you would have to let Ice thaw that's most likely holding bucket from coming out and then replace Ice Maker or water valve or both.

Automatic Ice Maker making grinding noise and will not release ice


The mold heater on the bottom of the ice maker is shot, that is why the cubes will not release. The grinding is the sweep arm trying to push the frozen cubes out.

Amana Bottom Freezer door when shut starts a noise


The light is switched on and off by a small lever which is pushed when closing or opening the door. This operates a microswitch. It would not make any grinding noise. Grinding noise can come from the fanmotor which would also stop when the fridge door is open.

Ice maker grinding sound


I found I get a odd clicking noise whenever the icecubes freeze inside of the box in the top left. You'll see about 20 little fingers, arms, or whatever you want to call them that spit out the ice into the container...make sure those fingers/arms arent stuck from the ice.

Ice-maker noise/vibration


That noise is coming from the icemaker motor module.  It is behind the the white square plastic cover which will pop off.  However it may be that the ice maker thermostat isn't opening and closing at the right time which would turn off the heater and put stress on the module to make it noisy.  Your best bet is to replace the whole ice maker for that is the easiest solution instead of buying parts which may add up to the cost a whole unit.  If you need help finding parts give me your entire model # from the sticker inside the fridge section.  You can look it up yourself at www3.sears.com to get the part #.  I have seen great "buy it now" prices on ebay.  If you don't think this solves your problem let me know before you rate the solution please.
